Purchased a Pi7 kit about 10 years ago but never assembled it. Now that I'm finally circling back around, I need some refreshers. My apologies if I re-ask frequent questions.

1) I swapped the originally 15" drivers for some JBL 2225H's. I seem to remember that the driver change to JBL required a crossover modification. Is that the case? If so, what is the modification?

2a) Speaking of crossovers, I have two 3-ways that I believe came with the kit. But there is also a bag of resistors (tie wrapped into parallel groups) with leads attached that I think also go with the kit. Was there a separate bag with leads, resistors, and terminals?

2b) Is the 10 year old crossover still a current revision or have updates been made during the past decade (the only identifier is the number 433)?

3) I bought the mid-horn flat pack back then. Are there any detailed assembly instructions for the mid horn? I'm having trouble puzzling it together.


Thanks.

It'll be good to finally put this together.

The JBL 2225H will work just fine in this design, as-is. But there have been a few changes over the last ten years, most notably a better waveguide for the tweeter. I'll send you the latest plans and I suggest you order a couple of waveguides and either modify the crossover you have or purchase a new one from us.

Shocked I'm another one. Purchased crossover boards and components, wave guides, all drivers a few years ago with the intent of completing a pair of 6 Pi's. Have misplaced the plans. Now that I'm retired I finally have time. Can you please resend the plans? Big question, will the Definimax work in the bass bin? I already have them. Thank you.

You've got mail!

And - Yes - The Definimax 4012HO works great in the six π bass bin.

Are the prices on the website for the crossovers per pair or each?

Prices shown on the website are for one unit, be it a crossover, a waveguide a kit or whatever. For a stereo pair, you'll need to purchase two.
